obama and mitt romney took the stage in denver to go head to head for the first time. an estimated 60 million americans tuned in to watch this critical moment in an often contentious presidential campaign with the election just 34 days away. crucial swing voters still undecided. with romney trailing in the polls, time running short, tonight could be his turning point. here's how it went down. they came out, shook hands, ready for the main event. but president obama began soft, very soft. a shoutout to the first lady. >> i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> romney graciously followed suit with an easy quip. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine, here with me. >> reporter: and then they got down to business. the subject, jobs. romney took it to the president from the get-go. >> middle income families are being crushed. >> reporter: it was clear and direct and aggressive. romney seemed ho
? >> well, because president obama in his dishonest way spent $250 million creating a caricature of somebody that doesn't exist. and second reason is, is that the mainstream media in playing clips of governor romney, over the past few months, have picked, in my opinion, the worst ones. what people saw last night was the real mitt romney, an individual that is truly compassionate, that really cares about people in america, understands they are hurting, under president obama, and demonstrated that he knows the issues from top to bottom. contrast that with a president that seemed, that not seemed, that was uninformed, detached, and demonstrated that he has been lazy and disengaged and has no idea, not only of his own policies, but has no idea what mitt romney's real policies are. the president last night showed us why the country is in trouble. and it is because we have a bumbler in the white house. jon: the folks at bloomberg.com, gave a generally good review to mr. , governor romney's performance but they said this. obama, president obama, can always console himself with the political science

obama says he has created 5 million jobs. mitt romney says not so much. let's look at the evidence and see what we can find. this is what the country looked like in 2009. barack obama's first full year in office. every state that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very bad. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years jobs come in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many dem

was on mitt romney who needed a turn around. president obama came into the debate ahead in every battleground state. with an estimated 60 million americans watching on tv, cable and the web, moderator jim leherer asked can you put more people to work? >> the answer is, yes, we can help. >> reporter: romney would cut taxes and regulations on small business. >> my priority is jobs, and so what i do is i bring down the tax rates. >> governor romney's proposal that he's been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> reporter: which the president claimed would help the rich at others' expense. >> the average middle class family with young children would pay $2,000 more. >> everything he said about my tax plan is not accurate. >> it is not possible to come up with enough tax cuts to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it's arithmetic. >> reporter: on medicare and social security one agreement. >> neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees. >> reporter: in ten years romney wants a private me
. president obama said he created five million jobs, mitt romney says not so much. let's look at the evidence. this is what the country looked like in 2009, president obama's first full year in office. every state that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very badly. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years we saw jobs come on and education and in health care and in business services and retail. and now look where we are today. every state that is lighter in color is where there are either no longer losing jobs or in most cases gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen we had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count, 4.4 million so far. but here's what's not mentioned much, 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 jobs. that falls short of the president's claim he created five million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim

million people seeing mitt romney as good as he can get, now if obama goes negative on him it just sent going to work. this is almost the worst thing that you all can do. >> i don't agree. i think what the president is trying to do is draw out his proposals. you put $5 trillion in tax cuts on the table, $2 trillion additional defense spending, additional medicare spending and you say you won't say how you pay for it. it's not honest. >> every one of those numbers heavily disputed. but but but. here's the thing. can you tell me, jennifer rubin, brulant blogger and columnist that you are. >> he's setting me up now. >> es seemed analyst that you are. can you tell me what barack obama's future vision is if he is re-elected? can you tell me from last night's debate what he is going to do? does anybody know? >> i actually thought that was the worst part of the debate. we have 23 million people unemployed, stop looking for work. what does he want to do? he wants to hire 100,000 teachers? first of all do we even know if we need 100,000 teachers? it's puny. it isn't big thinking. he wants to rai

-- >> the economy took center stage for most of the evening. romney accused obama of a lack of focus in his priorities. >> i do not know how the president could come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, and spend his energy and passion, for two years, fighting for obama care, instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> the president defended his national health care program and he called romney the wrong man to stave off future financial crises. >> does anybody out there think that the big problem we had is that there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> romney has been trailing obama in the polls. it remains to be seen whether his debate performance will change the presidential race. >> the european central bank is keeping interest rates at an historic low of 0.75%, resisting pressure for cuts to boost the ailing eurozone economy. the ecb president, mario draghi, said the bank is ready to help buy eurozone bonds to help troubled eurozone member c
michelle obama agreed to marry me. i want to wish you happy anniversary, and a year from now, we won't celebrate it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost, the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system had frozen up, and because of theo resilience and determinatin of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we still have a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy ad roll back regulation, we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small
happens. >> rose: katty. >> before i freeze out here today, i'm blaming the cold. the obama campaign has spent millions of dollars successfully making mitt romney unacceptab as a choice to the american public. tonight mitt romney made himself acceptable in the course of a 9 0-minute debate. >> rose: thank you, you're cold. >> it gets better and better. i think we saw people in each party say well obviously our candidate barely has a tongue, we don't know if they'll be able to. but it was skewed and what the obama team had an opportunity to do with a good debate was sort of end it. it really could have put this out of reach. if the performances had been flipped i think it might have happened that way. >> except that christie did predict on sunday and multiple interviews the narrative would change and it would be turned upside down. even chris christy looks like a winner. >> let me go back to other comments mike made, which i half agree with and half disagree with. i want to expand on the other half. mike's right that this created an opportunity for romney. he's also right that romney per
of august to respond to the obama team's attacks. in the month of august, president obama's campaign itself spent almost $200 million running attack ads against mitt romney. and we saw our role at restore our future to spend as much money as possible in the month of august when the romney campaign was -- had shortage of primary election money. and wasn't able to spend a lot of the money they had. so we spent money responding to the obama attacks in the months of august. >> and then decided not to spend in september is what you're saying? >> and now we're moving into our general election strategy and i think we'll be very active. >> bill, let me bring you in here. bill maher, you know about the bill maher tweet? he was not impressed. he likes to say what he thinks. sometimes maybe he should keep what he thinks to himself. but this one -- he sends a lot of tweets. i can't believe i'm saying this but obama looks like he does, in capital letters, need a teleprompter. i'm mentioning him because he's giving your super pac $1 million. an important guy to you. are you worried that what happened las

and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise, a study by mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. so for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want medicare -- don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this. and the republicans had a plan. they put a plan out. they put a plan, a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important has to be done on a bipartisan basis and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan baasis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of his debate said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massach
. the pressure was on mitt romney who needed a turnaround tonight. president obama came into the debate ahead in every battleground state. with an estimated 60 million americans watching on tv, cable and the web, moderator tjim hehrer asked, can you put more people to work. >> he would cut regulations and taxes on small businesses. >> my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates. >> governor romney's proposal that he has been promoting for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. >> reporter: which the president claimed would help the rich at others 'expense. >> the average mittedle class family would pay about $2,000 more. >> everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> it's not possible to coming up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it's arithmetic. >> reporter: on medicare and social security, one agreement -- >> neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees. >> reporter: in ten years,
about a republican. president obama has spent millions was dollars trying to show that governor romney was not worthy of being president. governor romney showed he was worthy and he is competent and all of that money was wasted to any of the 60 million who watched. >> steve: that's the beauty of seeing them side by side unfiltered and uninterrupt no commercials. in 30 second sound bites you can try to defend or define your opponent and that's what the president has done. last night, gretchen, when the president of the united states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true and keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe it. that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> gretchen: it was interesting how mitt romney was on the offensive and this is what republicans had critized him for in the past.
the deficit is projected to decrease, decrease, from $1.4 trillion in 2009 that would be when obama took office to $1.1 trillion in 2012. arithmetic is never mitt romney's strong suit. $300 million decrease is not the same as $1.4 million increase at least according to the law of mathematics on planet earth. hugo, this is the question, right? >> you're not going to ask me a math question? >> no. i know what the strong suits at this table are. but you know, there is -- we've talked about the wall of obfuscation. we've spent some time in this program talk about style over substance. can mitt romney get away with just saying this stuff? there's an article, cover story in "time" magazine saying the american public is increasingly less and less concerned about facts. >> i guess that's the big we'll see here. i think that the -- as some commentators noted, there's a lot of fodder in there for nice ads for the obama campaign to drive a truck through some of these ambiguities, vaguenesses, misstatements, whatever they are, and i guess we'll see that. i -- you know, again, i think the big thing i
